No one cares.. How don't you know about your son smoking?? That's a parental fail... I'm sorry your house burned down though... This one should get a ydi and fyl...

what's with people's obsession with sucking objects? we should be advising Op on what to do. OP, I say you beat the kid like a drum. After all you know what they say about sparing the rod.

You know since the time we were all babies we needed to suck on a beenky, it seems to calm us down. So it seems kind of natural for everyone to wanna suck on something or have something in our mouths. BTW is beenky spelled right? I have never had to spell it before.

Yup it's binky. Then there's the ever popular banky for blanket although you typically don't suck on that. My niece calls her binky a pucky though and I actually like that better.

I wouldn't necessarily blame it on the parents. I mean, they didn't even know he was smoking until now. They probably told him before not to smoke, but kids these days can fall pretty hard under peer pressure.

Nice parenting? What the hell do you know? The best a parent can do is teach the child as best they can. It is then up to the child to make the right decision. Parents can't be around their children all the time, and at some point you need to let the kids make their mistakes, as difficult as that may be. Sometimes the mistakes are bad, like in this case. That's when you punish the hell out of him and hope he's learned something.

50- do your parents know every bad thing you've done? I'm guessing no. The most a parent can do is give a child the tools and guidance they need, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the child will use those tools or follow advice the way they should.

You guys are so mean!! Like I'm a good kid for the most part and my parents are great parents but like they don't know everything about me like I go to parties all time and they didn't even know that I'm not a virgin. That doesn't make them bad

p.s. #90 a parent not knowing that their thirteen year old kid sneaks cigarettes while they are at the grocery store is NOT the same thing as parents not knowing their thirteen year old is going to parties and having sex.

You'd think a non smoker would at least smell the cigarette smoke. It was in the house! And the boy would smell of it as well. Kids are sometimes clever at hiding things like this but it's a hard smell to cover up.

If he smoked out the window you probably couldn't smell it in the house and there are ways to cover it up on yourself. My boss smokes during the work day and you NEVER smell it on her. If you know what you're doing you can hide it.

You can absolutely hide it. I (stupidly) smoked in Hugh school and my parents never knew until my dad found my pack in my car. Ironically enough I'd quit smoking a few weeks before and forgotten the pack was even there.

Who said that the child sneaks them in at the grocery store? I'm a senior in highschool, and almost every other time I've stopped by the gas station across the street to get a snack before clubs afterschool, there's been a middle schooler outside of the gas station asking me to buy them cigarettes. I always say no, but I know people who have said yes.

Oh, and when did I ever mention sneaking out to parties and having sex? Please don't put words in my mouth. Disagreeing with things I NEVER said won't help you prove your point.

i didn't mean he was sneaking them at the grocery store. I meant that he is probably smoking when he is home alone or with his friends. and you didn't say anything about sex or parties, the previous poster, who's profile says she is thirteen, said that her parents have no idea she goes to parties and had sex. I don't think that is the same thing as not knowing your kid is smoking

234, your boss smokes outside, right? Smoking is generally unacceptable indoors, at least in America. You can smell it if someone smokes inside, febreze be damned. Maybe mom's just more naive than her son. And the boy was being a boy but also a reckless ass.

My parents both quit smoking when I was born and always made sure I knew the dangers. Didn't mean I didn't smoke at one point in my life. It's easy to cover up if you smoke outside (or out windows) keep a pack of mints/gum with you and wear a jumper over your clothes just while you have the smoke and then spray with a strong antiperspirant to mask the smell. If kids really want to do these things they will always find a way. It may not be the right decision but children need to be able to make their own mistakes so they can learn

I know your not accusing the parent, but im just going to say its not the parents fault. kids these days have done drugs, had sex, and have gotten drunk starting at young ages. Im in 8th grade and i can already name a handful of people who i know are crackheads. and i also know a few people who have already tried ecstacy. Its sad but its not surprising thay he smomes.

  OHai15  |  12

yeah, it really is sad but true. my bro started to smoke at 13, he was pressured to do it or the kids who picked on him would beat him up. :l I really seriously dont want to live on this fucking planet anymore knowing that shit like this happens everyday.

I don't smome. In fact, I'm not even sure what smoming means. Smoking on the "second hand", I do all of the time. I wish I didn't have to but too many people smoke anymore, ruining my lungs. I've never tried it, I never will. My parents never smoked, my girlfriend and her family don't smoke... Though it seems like it, I guess it's safe to say that not everybody smokes.

Most of the people on this page are so judgmental, smoking is a personal choice yet discusting, I do smoke myself I am 17 and my parents let me because it is my choice and if I want to waste my money and destroy my lungs over something silly then that is my own fault. But smoking does not make them a bad person, you could meet the nicest person in the world and they could be a smoker... It DOES NOT mean they are horrible people!

#279 I completely agree. Smoking doesn't make someone a horrible person. I quit smoking but personally I love the smell, I liked the tasted of menthols and it gave me something to do with my hands when I talked to people at parties etc. I also have quite high anxiety and I found that it helped me to steady my breathing before having an attack (obviously not the best way about it but I can't take certain medications and it helped with tests in school)

How? If you ask parents or grandparents that smoke a lot would say they have been smoking since about that age so it's not a big change from then. Except we are aware of all the risks now.

Yes, but look at everything that kids are doing today: Young girls wear suggestive clothing, 11 year olds doing heroin... I fear what's going to happen to society.

both my grandpa and my mom smoked before they were teenagers. the next generation is much more aware of the health risk and thirteen-year-old smokers are becoming rarer.

I think that people focus on the negative too much. This is just one kid, you can't see how teens are now just from looking at what some of them do badly. Let's face it, no one is perfect, especially in their teens. My little sister is 14 and she gets straight A's and has good friends, doesn't do drugs or dress slutty and she is very mature. You see what I'm getting at? If all we hear about are the bad things going on we start to ignore the good.

When you really think hard about it, society isn't spiralling out of control like you'd expect. Boundaries have changed, and so has exposure to the harsher side of reality, but we aren't in this giant mess people would have you believe. We just have different problems. One of those being that people are getting chronic diseases much earlier - this is actually much scarier than the changes in behaviour themselves. Things like cigarettes have a role in this, but our lifestyles are the major issue.

It's true, life really isn't worse now than it was long ago, as people lead you to think. We have easily available knowledge, amazing technology, and many freedoms which were taken by tyrannical leaders, such as kings and religion. Not to mention the fact that now, life expectancies are through the roof compared to those of the middle ages and below.

So basically what your trying to say is that smoking makes someone a bad person? I smoke but I still work hard for a living, I pay my taxes, I love God and I'm a very family oriented man, so smoking shows nothing about what the future generation will be like, when you hear of an epidemic of 13 year olds dying from heroin overdose that's when you should start worrying

Kids smoking isn't what's destroying society since they've done it forever. The fact is laziness and stupidity are spreading at an alarming rate and it's all about "me, me, me!" Society has always been screwed up to an extent but it's worse than ever now. With the corruption and idiocracy in this country, we'll be lucky to still be here in 75 years. Maybe less.

157 - You haven't heard?! The latest statistics show that laying your head on even the softest of pillows is putting your health in GREAT RISK!! Look everyone is going to die that is a certainty, but if somebody wants to smoke they are going to do it. As long as they're of legal age it's their body. I personally smoke and enjoy it. Then I laugh at all the commercials that get you to quit smoking they are HILARIOUS!

#241 you are very accurate. That just about sums it up. I am dumbfounded by the way some(or most) people act. It's as if they just are too lazy to THINK about things.

You live in NJ and you don't know the legal smoking age? It's a federal law.. You have to be 18 to smoke. There's no excuse to not know. Any time you walk into a gas station, you see the 25-40 signs...

Reply

I'm pretty sure that law never stopped me. There is usually at least one store that doesn't enforce it, older friends or even hitting strangers up in the parking lot. I wish the law stopped me. I wish something did. But kids will do stupid things and sometimes smoking is one of them.

110 - The legal smoking age varies from state to state. Like when you sign up for cigarette coupons you must be 21 even though in most states 18 is the legal age. Crazy you say? I'll tell you what's crazy - drinking to much at the bar to where you have to close one eye so you don't see double lanes on your drive home - That's crazy
